lemon butter asparagus…

26 Apr

A visit to Sunrise Market got me giant stalks of asparagus for only $1 a bundle!  I always use the skinny kind that always cooks up tender and crisp so I wasn’t sure if these guys were going to be tough.  Turns out they were great even though I had to cook them a little bit longer than usual.  This recipe is a cinch and easy on the wallet.

What you need!
2 bunches of asparagus
1 lemon
4 tbsp butter
sea salt
ground pepper

What to do!

1.  Pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.  Wash your asparagus and break off the ends to get rid of the toughie bits.  Put them in a large glass casserole dish.

2.  Melt the butter and squeeze in half a lemon depending how juicy it is.  Go ahead and squeeze in the second one if you think there isn’t enough marinade.

3.  Toss the asparagus in the butter/lemon sauce and sprinkle on some sea salt and fresh ground pepper

4.  Roast in the oven for 25-30 minutes, giving a quick toss half way through.  Enjoy!

Approx Costs:

asparagus – $2.00
butter/lemon sauce – $0.75

Total: $2.75 for 3 people or $0.92 each
